Environmental Button

Description
Water is one of our most precious natural resources. Having a ready supply of water for drinking and irrigation is of paramount concern to society, even to those living in comparatively water rich regions such as New York City. This button was produced by the city’s Department of Environmental Protection to encourage water conservation.
